Resort Info

Tallinn

Tallinn is the capital of Estonia and is characterised by its cold winters, cool springs and warm summers. Granted World Heritage status in 1997, Tallinn’s picturesque Old Town is one of the best preserved in Northern Europe with its winding cobbled streets which date back as far as the 11th century. During the day visitors can experience the city’s wide selection of museums, galleries and churches and let loose at night in the thriving bars and clubs. Over the past ten years the city has seen a large increase in tourism due to the arrival of low-cost flights, which has lead to a lot of improvements across Tallinn, making it a safe and easy city to navigate.

Reasonable hotel in good location

The hotel is in perfect location and if you are able to get a good deal -- go for it. This is a former main Intourist hotel (the only hotel chain in USSR), huge 'soviet-style' building. This is, of course, not a 4-star hotel with appliances (e.g. iron or hair-drier) sometimes not/barely working, and overall cleaniness and tidiness, while acceptable, is not striking. The breakfast is very good (a bit weak on dessert side, may be, but only in comparison with overall choice). The thing to be aware of -- the check in time was 14:00 and NO EXCEPTION were allowed even at 13:55. It is beyond me, why, probably some instructions going back from communist time.

Great Place to stay!

Can vouch for all the comments made by the previous reporters. This is a very conveinient place for a visit to Tallin. Ask for a room facing the sea, the higher the better..we were on 17th floor...was a brilliant view of the old town.

Great hotel

Just like to confirm exactly what the other reporters have said...and nothing has changed!.....Top hotel, charming place, friendly people. Ask for a 'sea view'...stunning vista over the old town, and watch the ferries come and go! Much recommended.

if you like to shop...

The Viru Hotel is connected to a large indoor shopping mall with many designer shops (no souvenir shops) and a few good eating places serving Scandinavian and Italian style food.  We travelled in summer and appreciated both the location--steps away from Tallinn Old Town--and the fact that taxis were waiting when we needed to leave for the airport at 5am the next morning.  I wish we had been offered a room with a view of Old Town; our view was of the rooftop of the mall and we faced the bar which stayed open with loud music until past midnight (my only complaint).  The rooms are typically small but well designed with a clean bathroom with good fixtures.  We were offered an upgrade to business class for an extra 18 euros (larger room) on check-in but declined.
